|The Arizona Department of Transportation and Safford will begin a project to reconstruct 20th Avenue between Relation Street and Golf Course Road starting Monday, Sept. 20.|
During the work, 20th Avenue will remain open. However, motorists should anticipate traffic shifts, narrowed lanes and intermittent delays.
Business and residential access will be maintained. When concrete driveway entrances are replaced, short-term closures or very narrow access will be required. The project team will reach out prior to any restrictions on individual driveways for coordination.
Key elements of the project include:
- Roadway reconstruction and widening to five lanes with curb and gutter.
- New sidewalks.
- Concrete driveway entrances.
- Retaining walls (in certain locations).
- Storm drains.
- Water main replacement.
Work is expected to extend into late 2022.
The Arizona Department of Transportation is administering the project construction on behalf of Safford.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while this important project is completed.
